Sales Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Canton, OH
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Timken (Canton, OH) in May 2016.

Interview

Very unprofessional. I applied for the job and in about 2 weeks I received an email to schedule a phone interview. The email was very unprofessional and from an intern, which didn't bother me at the time. I scheduled the interview and the job interviewer called me 15 minutes late. I found this a very negative start. TO follow this negativity, he was also an intern. He was very dry and not knowledgeable about the position at all. I asked questions at the end and he didn't know the answer to any of them. He stated he would email me answers in a few days, well guess what, I never got an email! He even mentioned the job title, which was wrong, he didn't even know what job I was interviewing for! To me this made me absolutely not want to work for the company. It made me feel unwanted and unimportant.

2 weeks later, I got a rejection letter from another intern that was the most unprofessional rejection email I have even been sent. It was one line that said, unfortunately you have not been selected.

The company should really treat applicants like they matter.

    AaaThey were looking for sales engineers and that other alternative were not possible. I think you need lots of experience to apply to Timken. I think that it will be interesting to see how they adjust after the split

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Timken.

    Interview

    It was a half hour one on one interview. The interviewer began by asking me about my resume. He then asked me a few behavioral questions. He then explained the position and a lot about the company. Then he asked me if I had any further questions about the company/job. I heard back from them in about a week for a second interview.
